March 2nd – 8th
Common Fence Point, one of the most over-looked and yet tranquil spots on our dear island. I love it out here and even I drive by it on Rt. 24 with out blinking. I entered under the old railway bridge and was instantly in another town, nay, state of mind. There were people on their lunch breaks walking their dogs, all of whom gave a cordial wave as I slowly made my way through the winding and crisscrossing streets. I crisscrossed all the way to the Northernmost point on the island and found a small dirt footpath through the reeds and sea grasses. Once again I felt as if I was somewhere else. A warm March day, a gentle breeze, tufts of dune grass and the shape of a bridge I know well but from perspective that tricked me into believing that I was somewhere much further away from my home.
Today was a great day. Warm, peaceful, and hopefully a sign of more days like this soon!
